  7. 7. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Resume Keywords: What They Are  Specific terms and phrases employers use to create job postings and search for submitted resumes that match available positions  Almost always nouns  Not to be confused with ‘Buzzwords,’ which are generally adjectives.
  8. 8.

  11. 11. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ How Keywords Work  The majority of larger companies use tracking software to scan incoming resumes, searching for specified keywords and other information.  When searching available job postings, applicants should scan for specific words and phrases pertaining to qualifications and skills a company deems most important.  Keywords work two-fold:  For employers, it streamlines the application process  For job seekers, it keeps the resume focused  Even smaller companies may only look at a few resumes per job opening.
  12. 12. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Finding and Using Keywords Correctly  Study the job description and consider the job experience, skills, and education an employer is ideally seeking.  Compile a list of words and phrases by examining job postings for similar positions.  Incorporate keywords throughout a resume in a natural way.  Don’t just make lists, use proper context  Maintain an appropriate keyword density.  Other keywords may relate to specific job titles, education and certification, and industry-related acronyms or terminology.
  13. 13. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Professional History/Experience WHAT TO INCLUDE AND EXAMPLES OF FORMATTING
  14. 14.

  17. 17. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Other Sections To Include EDUCATION, ACTIVITIES, AND INTERESTS
  18. 18. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Educational Background  List your education in reverse order  For instance, if you’ve achieved a Master’s Degree, list it first, then your Bachelor’s  If you have achieved a Bachelor’s Degree, listing your high school diploma is unnecessary  If you’ve only completed high school, but are attending further education, do not list higher education until you graduate or receive a degree  GPA and any academic honors or awards should be listed if you are a graduate  Recent graduates use such achievements to augment qualifications  If you did not finish your degree, then write in the amount of credits that you obtained  List the relevant coursework and the major pursued
  19. 19. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Educational Background  If a degree makes a candidate appear overqualified for a position:  Job seekers should leave them off  When applying for jobs that require a certain degree:  Individuals working to complete that degree should list their education with expected graduation date and area of study  Incomplete schooling may be listed as a last resort  Especially if it's the only thing that qualifies the candidate for the position  Do not:  Embellish or falsify accomplishments, keep it too general, or ignore dates
  20. 20. Why Activities and Interests?  Any number of interests and activities can be professionally relevant, and may showcase your potential for leadership, teamwork, and experience.  A study by LinkedIn showed that 41% of hiring managers find information about an applicant's interests and volunteer opportunities to be as equally important as the applicant's work experience.
  21. 21. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Activities and Interests What to Include  College Clubs  Community Involvement/Volunteer Activities  Athletics  Professional Societies  Always remember: all activities, unless you are a recent grad, should relate back to the job you are applying for What Not To Include  Explicitly partisan activities  Should only use if the job is overtly political  Irrelevant activities should be avoided  (i.e.) Reading, watching movies, spending time with friends and family  Religious activities should be kept to a minimum, if possible  Again, if the job itself warrants such activities, feel free to list them
  22. 22. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Resume Types, Formats & Presentation WHICH RESUME IS RIGHT FOR ME?
  23. 23. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Types of Resumes  Chronological  Most common  Usually better for someone with more actual job experience  Lists work experience chronologically, from most recent to oldest  Functional  Skills-based  Highlights abilities rather than a chronological listing of your work history  Works well for people with gaps in their work history, those who frequently change jobs, and young workers just entering or reentering the workforce  Combination

  28. 28. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ Should I Send A Cover Letter?  Cover letters should reaffirm your desire for an open position  Remember: You’re always competing with multiple other candidates for the same position  Any chance you can to stand out, take it  All jobs don’t need or require a cover letter, but it never hurts to add one to submitted applications or resumes  With online applications, certain job portals allow applicants to upload both resumes and cover letter attachments
  29. 29. Copyright © Job-Applications.com http://www.job-applications.com/resources/lesson-plans/ What Goes In A Cover Letter?  Start with your contact information  Should match the resume  Use the company information next  Contact person’s name, title, company name, address  The first paragraph explains why you are writing  Get the reader’s attention  The second paragraph talks about qualifications  Why you’re a good fit for the job
  30. 30.
